The word pearl comes from the latin word pirum, which means pear and relates to the shape of gem. Ancient Greeks believed that pearls promote marital bliss and that a pearl necklace can also prevent newly-wed brides from crying.
Pearl jewellery has made a comeback recently and they make ideal gifts.
What to look out for:
Lustre: the shine and reflection on the pearl's surface.
The surface: if you rub it against your teeth, a real pearl should feel slightly rough as it is a natural product, fake pearls feel smooth.
Colour: colour preferences for pearls differ around the world and depend largely on fashion and location. Pearl comes in various shades, including shimmering white and glistening pink.
Shape: pearls are usually round, but cultured pearls can be encouraged to grow into other shapes.
